Crochet Rose With Stems

Crochet Roses With Stems


-Worsted weight yarn (I used Caron Simply Soft for the roses and scrap yarn for the stem)
-Size G (4.25mm) crochet hook
-Pipe Cleaner
-Tapestry Needle


Ch = Chain Stitch
Sc = Single Crochet Stitch
Dc = Double Crochet Stitch
Tr = Triple Crochet Stitch
Dtr = Double Triple Crochet Stitch
Sl St = Slip Stitch

Gauge And Size Information

There is no gauge for this pattern. The size of the roses will be determined by the yarn you use and the size hook. Play around with different combinations to see what looks best for your needs.



Ch 46
Row 1:  Starting with second chain from hook, sc across (45 stitches). Chain 1, turn.
Row 2:  Dc in first st. {{skip next st, (Tr, Ch 1, Tr, Ch 1, Tr, Ch 1, Tr) in next st, skip next st, Dc in next st.}} x 6; {{skip next st, (Dtr, Ch 1, Dtr, Ch 1, Dtr, Ch 1, Dtr, Ch 1, Dtr) in next st, skip next st, Dc in next st.}} x 5.
Bind off.

Wrap the rose so that the bottom edge is flat using the tail yarn to secure.

Calyx (green part that goes below the rose)

With green yarn, leave a longer beginning tail than normal, Ch 5 , Sl St to join circle
Round 1:  Sc in each ch (5 sts).
Round 2: {{sc in next st, Ch 4, Sc in second ch from hook, Sc in next 2 chains}} x 5. Sl St to join.
Bind off leaving a long tail to secure calyx to rose.


Fold the top of the pipe cleaner down at around a third of the length.
Put ends of pipe cleaner through the edges of the center hole in the calyx (with the curled edges pointing up) and pull the pipe cleaner down so that only the bend is on the inside of the calyx.
Twist the two ends of the pipe cleaner together.
Bend the bottom of the pipe cleaner up and twist together to keep the end from being pointy.

Using the calyx yarn tails, secure the rose to the calyx. I stuck the needle up between the petals of the rose, tied a knot, then brought needle back through. Then I did the same on the opposite side of the rose. Weave in the calyx yarn tails.

Wrap yarn around the pipe cleaner until reaching the end. Use the loop made from the twist to cover the bottom of the stem. Use a tapestry needle to push the end of the yarn up through the wrapped yarn and cut yarn.
